WHAT IS UNGA GUIDE?

Since 2016, UNGA Guide has been your comprehensive crowdsourced calendar for official and unofficial events around the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). As much of UNGA goes virtual in its 75th year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are here to help you plan your schedule, register for events and watch day-of. The UN’s role in fostering global solidarity and cooperation has never been more important than now. And there’s never been a better time to expand participation at UNGA to a truly global audience.

We’ve revamped this year’s guide, now called UNGA Guide Virtual, for easier at-home participation. With event livestreams and archives where available, you can browse through and participate in hundreds of events throughout the month of September.

While extensive, this guide is by no means exhaustive. Please submit your event here or contact us to update an existing event.

WHAT IS UNGA?

Beginning on September 15th, leaders from around the world will convene virtually for the 75th United Nations General Assembly. This annual gathering features hundreds of events throughout September where world leaders discuss some of the biggest global challenges – from public health to climate change to human rights – and drive progress toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals for a more equitable global future.

WHO’S BEHIND UNGA GUIDE?

Global Health Strategies (GHS) uses advocacy, communications and policy analysis to advance issues and power campaigns that improve health and wellbeing around the world. We have offices in New York, New Delhi, Rio de Janeiro, Beijing, Johannesburg, Nairobi and London and support the work of philanthropies, industry, multinational organizations, NGOs and governments, among others. Our work spans some of the world’s most dynamic regions to enable policy innovations, mobilize resources and build political will, engaging global and local audiences to drive change. At the heart of our work is the vision of a world where everyone, no matter where they live, has the chance to live a healthy life.


Please note that this guide is crowdsourced and GHS cannot secure invitations to events, provide additional contact information or guarantee that information is up-to-date or exhaustive. Please contact event hosts with questions and to confirm final event details.
